Permanently Delete Unnecessary Files and Secure Your Computer

"Get rid of your electronic paper trail and delete unnecessary files"

Are you looking for software to permanently delete unnecessary files or files you no longer want on your hard drive? 

 

We've reviewed four of the best software packages that will get the job done right, the first time and everytime. (All the subpar programs have been weeded out)

 

These specialized computer scanning software programs scan your computer for unnecessary files, including browser files and caches and already know the right places to look for such files.  That way you don't have to go digging into every nook and cranny of your computer -- all the unnecessary files are automatically found and deleted for you -- permanently!

 

These programs cost anywhere between 30 to 100 dollars, and definitely pay for themselves 300-400% times over -- You'll end up with a refreshed computer that performs as good as new!

 

Here's something to think about.  Since this software can clean your computer and at the same time boost its performance (avoid Windows rot by getting rid of gunk) -- you put off buying that $1000 new computer for another year.  If you put it in those terms, you probably just saved at least 200-500 dollars!  Which definitely pays for the program ten times over.  And when you buy your new computer, you can use the same software on that too! 

 

Below we've reviewed the top 3 security software programs that offer great value by specializing in permanently and securely deleting unnecessary files.  While each package has a different price point depending on your requirements, all software titles below allow you to try before you buy so that you assured not to be stuck with some program that doesn't work for you -- really, you can't go wrong! 

 

The longer you delay cleaning up your personal, unwanted data, the better the chance someone has of intentionally (or accidentally) viewing your personal files.  Get those personal and unwanted files erased immediately!

     

Update!

Overwhelmingly the most popular and best choice has been Secure Clean by White Canyon.  A close runner up and worth considering is Evidence Smart.  Tip - download the trials if you are unsure which one is better.

How to Download Youtube Videos

"Make downloading your favorite videos a snap"

Even as a self proclaimed computer geek, I've found the task of copying videos from youtube and other video search engines very frustrating and tedious if you try to do it manually evvverrry sinnngle time...  I feel sorry for you non-techies out there! :P j/k

 
Another thing that adds to the inconvience of trying to copy videos from YouTube is the format, FLV -- not very usable if you want to transfer it to your iPod or Zune.  Seems like YouTube is doing a good job at keeping a tight grip on their videos!

 

Well not anymore... 

 

In comes  Video Piggy , oink oink!  By using this software I've figured out how to copy movies from YouTube, convert them to a different format and have them transfered over to my Zune or celll phone in about 5 minutes! (Depending on the movie size of course).  That's saving a lot of time and, most of all, tedium for me!  

 

For the most part, I like to do things manually since I enjoy a technical challenge, but figuring out how to copy movies from youtube was probably one of the most annoying and tedious things so I wanted to streamline the process. 

 

But hey, if you're computer savvy and up for a techncial challenge (and don't mind headbanging, and manual labor, and frustration) there are a lot of ways to manually copy movies from YouTube.   For the rest you who want a simple solution to copying videos from YouTube, I recommend Video Piggy.  

 

BTW, be sure to watch the tutorial to see how easy it is to use!
